Between a rock called heaven and a hard place called home, we wander the shadows so restless and lonesome. For in the fallow field where what's reaped is what's sewn there lies a road to ruin and it's paved with our tombstones. So if you catch my reflection in a sheet of summer rain, pray tell do remain silent for fear you'll awaken them beautiful owners of the wings that we bear for fear they'll reclaim them and send us back there. For we return to Earth on borrowed wings
lifted from the shoulders of sweet dreaming angels. Now the world beyond the world we never will reach, 'cause you can't get to heaven on no... no borrowed wings.

i don't know whatthehell you are talkin about, but it sounds reeeel purdy...Except the part about a road to ruin being paved with our tombstones. That is kind of scary.

you should cite your references, or you'll get a bad whiskerino grade for plagiarizing.

and iron your shirt.

and if i haven't said it before, i really enjoy your literary captions.

I figured I would cite the source at some point but was wondering whether it was something Whiskeroonis would just automatically recognize.

I did iron my shirt, last night, but then I didn't get to take my photo until after not only working a full day but picking the kids up form school and taking them to an after-school dinner function. So I'd been wearing this shirt for almost 13 hours by the time I could take the photo. Which was why I decided to try to play with light and shadow like this.

Clame for the inspiration for tonight's shot & the source of the caption.

@hale. hahaha.... jerk

@Scrivener nice quotes as always but your audience isn't that well read. If anything I might use your posts as a book list.

I have a great story about Jim White. Zena (clame) wanted a copy of "No Such Place" pretty badly after hearing 'Handcuffed to a Fence...' on NPR. And she's pretty ballsy, you know. So one night at homegroup, she's praying with a friend, and they're real intense, you know? They've got their heads bowed and their eyes closed, and it's one on one, Z and her friend. And she prays, "Jesus, I really want this new Jim White album I heard on NPR today. Would you send it to me?" And of course, she gets an anonymous gift in the mailbox the next day. I laughed out loud.

@jnonfiction: That's an awesome story. Isn't it great when prayer can be answered so directly?

I just totally stumbled on Jim White at a listening station in an indie record store in Charlottesville, VA when No Such Place came out. I listened to "Handcuffed to a Fence in Mississippi" and then immediately purchased it and listened to it obsessively for months. I saw him live once here in Atlanta--was one of about 10 people in the audience, and got the chance to talk to him for a while. He was a lot like what you'd expect from his music, I think.
